The objective of this thesis is to investigate the use of the Universal Controller to control the DC-to-DC power converter and the Auxiliary Resonant Commutated Pole (ARCP) power inverter. These power electronic devices are central to the development of a DC Zonal Electric Distribution System (DC ZEDS) that is scheduled for application in the twenty-first century surface combatant (SC-21). The development of appropriate closed-loop controls is a key element to this design process. The Universal...
